Full Recipe:

Embark on a flavor-packed fiesta with our Air Fryer Loaded Nachos: A Crunchy Fiesta – a mouthwatering twist on the classic party favorite. Crispy tortilla chips create the base for layers of seasoned ground beef, gooey melted cheese, zesty jalapeños, fresh tomatoes, black beans, and vibrant salsa. Elevate your snacking game with a crunchy sensation in every bite.


  • 1 bag of tortilla chips

  • 1 lb ground beef, seasoned with taco seasoning

  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)

  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1/2 cup sliced jalapeños (fresh or pickled)

  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes, diced

  • 1 cup fresh salsa

  • Sour cream, guacamole, and cilantro for garnish


  • Preparation:

    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for optimal melting and crisping.

  • Layer the Tortilla Chips:

    • Arrange a layer of tortilla chips on the bottom of the air fryer basket, ensuring even coverage.

  • Add Seasoned Ground Beef:

    • Evenly spread the seasoned ground beef over the tortilla chips, creating a delicious foundation for your nachos.

  • Cheese, Cheese, Cheese:

    • Sprinkle the shredded cheese generously over the beef and chips, making sure each chip gets a gooey cheese coating.

  • Top with Black Beans, Jalapeños, and Fresh Tomatoes:

    • Scatter black beans, sliced jalapeños, and diced fresh tomatoes over the cheesy layer, adding a kick of spice, a burst of freshness, and a dose of protein.

  • Repeat the Layers:

    • Repeat the layering process with another round of tortilla chips, seasoned ground beef, cheese, black beans, jalapeños, and fresh tomatoes until you achieve the desired nacho tower.

  • Air Fry to Perfection:

    • Air fry the loaded nachos at 375°F (190°C) for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, gooey, and the edges of the chips are golden brown.

  • Serve and Garnish:

    • Carefully remove the loaded nachos from the air fryer. Top with fresh salsa, dollops of sour cream, guacamole, and a sprinkle of cilantro.

Tips for Nacho Nirvana:

  • Customize Toppings: Personalize your nachos with additional toppings like diced tomatoes, green onions, or olives to suit your taste.

  • Layering Technique: Ensure even distribution of toppings by layering the ingredients evenly, allowing each chip to become a flavor-packed delight.

  • Watch Closely: Keep an eye on the nachos while air frying to prevent burning. Cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer model.

  • Serve Immediately: Nachos are best enjoyed fresh out of the air fryer when the cheese is gooey and the chips are at their crispiest.
